Swell Summary

Surf along north and west facing shores will linger into Friday, then lower this weekend as the small northwest swell fades. Surf along south facing shores will continue to ease through Friday as the south swell lowers. Over the weekend, a mix of background south and southeast swell will be enough to keep the surf from going flat, which should hold into early next week. Surf along east facing shores will remain small through Saturday, then begin to build Sunday through early next week, potentially reaching the advisory level by Monday night through midweek due to a combination of strong trade winds and a moderate northeast swell.
